Sadly Sam's gran had died earlier yesterday so she was unexpectedly home and in need of a night out (or to get pissed more like). I'd place money on the fact that she was already pretty drunk when I picked her up from her house though she swears blinid she hadn't been. I've seen a Drunk Sam enough times to recognise her me thinks. Anyway we met Nathan and Dowell in the Sir Nigel (after I again got stopped at the door for I.D. – I was even wearing a Warwick hoodie for God's sake!!) for a while before Dowell had to leave and Kenny – complete with shocking Paisley shirt from the leavers prom – arrived tanked up on a half dozen or so Stella's.
So the drinking commenced and I, once again, was stopped at the Bar, for looking underage – am getting totally sick of this!! Now I know this wasn't just because I was drinking coke only but Kenny didn't seem to shut up at all, if it wasn't rowing or pumpkins he was talking about then it was pumpkins or rowing!! I must have caught Nathan rolling his eyes a good twenty odd times!!
I got introduced to Strawpedo – at which was Rob was mightly impressive with a Reef. I don't think I've ever seen anything drank so quickly including Nathan downing his trademark DVRB in less than 15 secs!! Then later in the night as we walked down the High Street Kenny started doing cartwheels in his intoxicated state – how he didn't end up flat on his arse I shall never know!!
After Spoonies had closed them came the enviable task of trying to get these pissheads home; Kenny insisted on walking so Rob went with him to make sure he actually got home, Sam on the otherhand wasn't too willing to go back to the car as she didn't seem to want to go home. Eventually, after lying on the floor outside the Sir Nigel and 'pole dancing' around a bollard (at which a pervy taxi driver flashed his lights) Nathan and I had managed to get her back to the car to go home.
All in all an excellent night – who says you have to be drunk to have a good time and that being the only sober one is no fun!! Pictures most definately to follow…

Only 124 days until Melbourne – I can't wait, Webber in a Williams should be interesting.

I wanted to write this last night, but I couldn't add to my blog for some reason :(
Quite simply Top Gear is one, if not the best, kept secret on the BBC. The brilliance the show delievers each week is simply awesome. Its not a show thats advertised to death or talked-up, but simply goes about its business each Sunday on BBC2 while its legions of fans tune in to see comical brilliance of the 3 guys.
Who else but Rich Hammond could make a Porsche 911 obsession both amusing and worth-watching? Jeremy Clarksons sheer arrogance at times over the 'Cool Wall' – though of course the DB9 does deserve its own fridge and I agree with him over the Ferrari Enzo (the F1 fan in me is so anti-ferrari) but some cars he just has wrong!!
The attempts to destroy the land rover (edit: sorry pick-up truck my mistake) , the caravan target practice and theice cream vans over the bouncy castles make this show worth watching all on its own.
Top Gear, proof that a car show doesn't have to be serious or boring!!!
